Bressingham Installation

Adrian Bloom’s largest to date large-scale perennial demonstration and display garden build took place August 3rd, 2007 with 1.01 acres planted with the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donated plants!

An extreme transformation was made turning 44,200 square feet, of grassy underused lawn space into the beginnings of a magnificent four-season display perennial garden with the expertise of English garden designer and horticulturist, Adrian Bloom. The community took part in a rare opportunity to work alongside famous English garden designer and horticulturist Adrian Bloom as he worked his magic to a new display garden for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank in Wellesley.

The new garden contains a mixture of perennials, trees, and shrubs with a specific focus for creating functional and beautiful residential landscapes; all plants featured promise to grow to a mature height under 30’ tall and have been selected for four season enjoyment and sustainability.

Thank You!
